    ...and it is most definitely a EE's! I was trying to be patient as my older girls are 26+ weeks old... Upon inspecting vents to see which of my EE's it could be, I discovered a few lice! [​IMG] so good news and bad news all in one day. tomorrow I'm headed to the feed store to get some lice-be-gone (DE and some sevin/pyrethrin dust) Maybe once I treat my ladies I'll start getting more of these beauties. I can't wait to check to coop tomorrow!!

    here are some pics:
